Barkbox (Just Right) - January 2020 Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Links below are referral links. This means if you click my link and sign up, I will get something in return. Find out more info here.

What is BarkBox?: BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for your favorite pupper. Each box includes five items, two toys, two bags of treats, and a chew. You tell them the size of your pupper and how you want to pay, and then you decide if you want to spend an extra $9/box for an extra toy! It's divided into three sizes, so Trumpet fits nicely in the middle category as 'Just Right' whereas Murphy firmly fits in 'large.'

How Much is BarkBox?: If you want no commitments, cancel anytime, the box is $29/month. A three-month commitment brings it down to $25/month. Six months is $23/month (billed up-front as $138) and a one-year commitment is $22/month but you get to pay monthly! You get free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada, but there is sales tax applied to certain states.

From here on out, all boxes are Just Right!


Like I mentioned, I'll still feature big guy. He's just too cute to not show off.


Theme card.


Toboggan Noggin/Winter Bod ($10.00) - I don't know if this was meant to be two toys or one, but it looks like one to me. When they featured the Frankentoys in October, they sent two sets of interchangable toys, and I told them as much when I emailed them for this month. It seems like an easy way to cheap out and make one toy into two. The top is treat dispensing but like I've mentioned previously, we don't utilize that function because we have two dogs and only one box. Murphy has loved playing with the top (he loves balls) and Trumpet is happy with any toy that Murphy lets him have.


Snowman Peepers ($5.00) - These were meant to go into the eyes of the snowman toy. Both boys loved these as they were soft and chewy, and they smelled nice too!

Snowman Nose Nibbles ($5.00) - These were meant to go in the nose. Also soft and chewy and a hit with the boys! Less smell-good, though, on my end.

Peanut Butter & Carob Stick ($3.00) - I love getting these and will most likely make an order from the shop (sign up for Rakuten for cash back on the shop) of these because of how much the boys love them. They're great for a special treat!


The box value is $23.00/$33.00 depending on if you consider the snowman thing one or two toys. I consider it one toy based on past experiences, meaning I spent more on the box than I received. I did complain to Barkbox and they sent me another toy to make things right, so kudos to their support staff.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments below!
